Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)
Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) is a course created by the American Academy of Pediatrics with the American Heart Association. The AAP describes it this way: "The course has been designed to teach an evidence-based approach to the resuscitation of the newborn to hospital staff who care for newborns at the time of delivery."
NRP has two parts: an online module and an in-person skills section. NRP rules say that you may not access the online module more than 30 days before your skills section. We require that every participant successfully complete all nine sections of the online module and bring your confirmation certificate to the in-person skills section. The online module is an open-book test. If you fail one of the nine sections twice, you will fail the entire online module, and you'll need to buy a new online module for $20 (all of which goes to HealthStream and the AAP -- none is kept by UVa).
Please click on a class below (scroll down to see the classes) to go to the registration form for that class. All participants must register.
Non-UVa staff: When you complete the registration, the Life Support Learning Center will contact you for your payment. On receipt of payment, the LSLC will sign you up for the online module and the in-person skills section that you want to attend, as well as send you a textbook. Total cost for non-UVa employees for the course is $150.00.
UVa staff: Your registration must include the name of the department paying for your course. Once you complete your registration, LSLC will sign you up for the online module and the in-person skills section that you want to attend. You will need to obtain a textbook from your department or online at the Health Sciences Library website.
Please do not sign up for the online module on your own, as you risk signing up for a module that is not approved by the AAP. As the AAP says: "The American Academy of Pediatrics has been advised that there are entities offering NRP 'certification' or 'verification' cards through online courses. Please be advised that these entities are not affiliated, associated with, or connected to AAP and they have no authority from AAP or the American Heart Association to make this use of NRP or to issue cards."
Classes are each month, the third Monday from 4 PM - 6 PM, and the third Thursday from 6 PM - 8 PM.
